This 12-week art and design competition is named after OLED technology’s self-emissive nature. In this project, 52 students studying Information Experience Design at the RCA were briefed to utilise various forms of the latest OLED technology, including Transparent and Curved OLED displays to produce a total of 15 independent projects and 21 group projects, with the purpose of “generating transformative experience of information that challenges or disrupts perspective”.
Based on self-emissive pixels, the OLED display has become a popular digital art medium that delivers true picture quality without distortion, loss, or exaggeration. To ensure the highest quality that does not compromise an artist’s original intentions, LG Display engineers provided technical and product support for the RCA students from the beginning stages of the competition up until the exhibition.
Five finalists selected from the Luminous project are be displayed at an exhibition at the Old Street Gallery in London from 28 September to 4 October.
These shortlisted projects include:
Time-flux, a four-layer Transparent OLED with spatial sound installation that creates visual and sonic experience of perceptual time in the form of flux. Team: Jiajing Zhao and Yueshen Wu.
A Room with a View, which depicts two OLED display as a window that shifts between a realistic view and a hyperreal view. Team: Laura Selby, Alexandra Topaz and Devanshi Rungta.
Invisible Reinvention, which uses four curved OLED displays to emphasise OLED’s precise picture quality by depicting the movements and changes of micro-organisms in microscopic view. Team: Yijun Chen, Mengyun Xie, Qianhao Chen and Yuting Xue.
ALPHA[BETA], a speculative system that visually represents post-language communication using transparent technology. Team: Finbar Marcel.
Behaviours, which features three OLED displays to create a moving image piece detailing the interactivity between charcoal, paper and sound. Team: Nicholas Faris.
At the end of the exhibition, three winners will be selected out of the five artworks by a panel. LG Display will give winners an exclusive tour of its facilities in Korea later this year, where they will be able to experience the hub of OLED technology in person and receive inspiration from how the ‘digital canvas’ for many renowned artists is made.
“It’s been exciting to watch our students push the boundaries of experience design during this competition. LG Display’s OLED technology has made it possible to compose in unique ways with light and sound, and the result has been some startlingly beautiful, perspective-shifting work. I’m incredibly proud of what they have achieved.”Head of Programme, Information Experience Design
“Collaborating with the world's most prestigious art and design school, RCA, represents once again that OLED is the most optimal art canvas. In addition to working with various fields of art based on our next-generation OLED technology, we will continue to promote premium values of OLED through its unsurpassed image quality and various design factors that allow for endless applications.”Head of Life Display Promotion Division at LG Display
